The John Robert Seeley Lectures

The Seeley Lectures are given biennially by a distinguished visitor to Cambridge, on a topic in Political Thought and its History. The Lectures are supported by the Cambridge University Press, and are subsequently published by them.

The Lectures for 2017 will be given by Professor Axel Honneth (Institut fur Sozialforschung, Frankfurt and Columbia, New York). The title for Professor Honneth’s series is 'Recognition — three national cultures'.  The lectures will be delivered on Tuesday 16, Thursday 18, Tuesday 23 and Thursday 25 May 2017.

A major conference on this theme will be held under the auspices of the Centre for Political Thought at Clare College, Cambridge, on 10-11 May 2018. The conference will address the ways in which political philosophers have engaged with concepts of time and the evidence of history. Booking details will be available here in Sept 2017.
